Can't believe they did it again. Something has to give eventually. You can't play every game that way.

Really feeling like we are gunna get crushed in conference play. Our OL is wretched.

I wish that Kirk Ciarrocca had taken that West Virginia job. Their offense is sooooo predictable.

Look... we got a lot of talent but don't know how to use them. Don't say we gifted them scores, they earned those scores. They won the line of scrimmage... stopped our run, and gave our OL hell. I wouldn't say they out played us, but we definitely are playing vanilla offense. Our winning late just goes to prove that we have talent at WR, but would just rather RUTM. Someone please tell Morgan to learn how to keep the ball too sometimes, or when he's on the run and out of the pocket, throw it out of bounds!

Gifted them 4 scores actually, that needs to change quickly.

GA Southern had less than 200 yds total offense.


No matter how you try and spin it they were gifted 2 tds. Scored 2 more of off fumble recovery and a blocked kick.

They had things go their way that kept them in the game.

I wouldn't call them "gifted" because they made the plays... gifted would be like if we gave them dumb penalties and or made dumb fumbles, etc (like last week)... blocked FG, sack fumble recovery, were all legit plays.

At this point Minnesota needs to accept that they are a passing team. Its disappointing how the OL has regressed this year, but the QB and WRs are the best players on the team and should be featured in spite of the balance our staff would like to have.

Sorry to be a Pollyanna, but that last drive was insane. Included a 3rd and 30. There were a number of fluke plays that went GSU’s way, and without them, it would not have been a nail biter.

When Michigan barely escaped losing to Army, they unapologetically celebrated. This is a win to be celebrated. No apology needed.

GSU ain't no Army.
So far the Gophers have played 3 mediocre to below mediocre games and barely won. At this moment it is hard to visualize more than 3 wins in the B1G for the Gophers.
The upside is that no Gopher fan should go into the B1G season with over expectations.

Not sure how terrible blocking that leads to a strip/fumble and blocked FG is “gifting” them anything. Gifting is what Devers did against Fresno.

Certain individuals are getting beat one on one. Can’t run, can’t pass block vs a Sun belt defense. This has been going on all season. Doesn’t bode well.

QB had a bad game early but recovered for the W.

TJ had a great game. Great hands today.

RB room very thin. Story on Ibrahim? Brooks getting close? Hopefully quick tbi recovery for Smith and Wiley.

Coaches were horse**** today. Ridiculous clock management/timeouts. Horrendous decisions on the third and fourth down plays.

Wild Cat trapped today. Need to keep them honest.

Special teams failure. Blocking scheme?? Kicking out of bounds at a critical juncture. Unbelievable.

Need to get better...2 weeks.

You are right about GSU not being Army.

Army was a 22 point dog against Michigan.

GSU was a 17 point dog against the Gophers.
